Just a quick question about re-firing work. I wasn't happy with some details around a logo that I carved in to my pieces so I've fixed them with glaze (and also filled a few pinholes) - my question is whether or not I need to be as meticulous about dust and fingerprints on these like you do with glaze on bisque. I had to hold them firmly and work slowly to fix my glaze errors from the past firing. I'm feeling like that stuff (oil from my hands, dust) will burn off before the glaze melts again since its technically laying over top of a hardened/fired glaze and not absorbing into un-fired glaze... thoughts? Thanks so much, friends!
I'd like to try and make a glazed ceramic keyboard key cap. The stems of these keycaps are very fine; the whole part is about an inch in diagonal. Can any clay retain this level of detail after firing? Maybe it would work better to glue a plastic stem onto a shell of ceramic, but it would be especially nice if the whole thing could be of one material. Thanks for the ideas!
